Go with #7, pcsx2 is very reliant on cpu speeds so you want as much of that as possible, hopefully you can overclock that to 3.0ghz atleast. And it runs better on nvidia cards, a gtx260 is good card.

Can any of those even be overclocked? If not, I really have to advise you not to bother spending so much on one if it's for PCSX2, when you could assemble (or buy) a budget level PC with a basic but overclocking capable motherboard, a decent dual core CPU, and a decent GeForce 8800GT range or higher video card, that will both outperform all of those in PCSX2, and cost less to do it. Those are all decent PCs on their own, but for the cost and the lack of overclocking (which is ideal for PCSX2), I couldn't advise any if it's for PCSX2.

Guys, he wants a pc for pcsx2. What are you doing recommending the athlon? :p

Edit:
Oh, none of these are good. Build your own using a core2duo E8400, and a geforce 9800gtx.
Then overclock the cpu towards 4ghz.
That will be the best computer for pcsx2 you can buy at this time :)

Edit2:
If you don't want to (or can't) build / oc your pc, then go with #7.
It will be fast enough for many games and it has a good vga card (avoid ATI cards with pcsx2).
